While cheese balls and corn nuggets are NOT hard to come by in this area, you will not find fried okra on many menus. It’s just one of the reasons to make the trip to Sugapeach in August when it opens. The owner promised food “like going to your grandmother’s house on Thanksgiving”, and from what I tasted at the soft opening, they delivered. I’ll be completely honest here, I’m not well versed in southern cooking. But that’s why I surround myself with southern food eating professionals. What we experienced at the soft opening was a promising nod to what will open on August 1st, sandwiched in the middle of the Creative Corridor in North Liberty.
**Update: Sugapeach opened as scheduled yesterday, and you can now help yourself to all the gems of southern cooking you can handle.
